AT&T offers $65 GoPhone plan to attract smartphone users

Around the time it announced its Share Everything plans, Verizon prepaid rolled out a new prepaid smartphone plan: $80 per month for unlimited talk and text plus 1GB of smartphone data. It put one phone up with the plan originally, but a few months later added more phones. It appears that AT&T GoPhone is trying to undercut them on that plan. They recently announced a prepaid smartphone plan of their own — for $15 cheaper while providing the same 1GB of data. It also has a cheapie phone to go along with it: the Fusion 2 for $99. It’s an Android 2.3 device with a 3.5-inch display and other features that were big two years ago. Everything’s set to hit on October 7th. There seems little reason to go for Verizon’s prepaid smartphone plan if you get AT&T service (and can handle the sub-par phone offering).
